Beautiful use of language! Seth, Gabby, and I were entranced by Felicity Pickle's tale and her word collection. Aside from the lovely and brazen protagonist, "A Snicker of Magic" is just plum full of colorful characters who seem to spring to life before our eyes. Some favorites: Noah, Aunt Cleo, Boone, Oliver, Rambling Rose, Florentine. I love how Llyod turns the mundane into magic all while making some heavy issues approachable. ( )

Felicity Pickle is a quiet and reserved girl whose family moves really often. She doesn't feel like she has strong roots until her family rolls into Midnight Gulch, her mom's hometown. Midnight Gulch is a magical place and soon felicity has things she never thought she'd find like an extended family and true friends. Now she must use the magic of Midnight Gulch to lift the curse that has kept her family wandering and free the town as well. ( )

Though I can appreciate it as a great piece of literature, it wasn't something I would normally sit through. It was a good book with many conflicts and a grand resolution. Definitely geared towards 5/ 6th graders. ( )

Felicity’s mother doesn’t stay in one place for long. Her latest wandering has brought them (along with Felicity’s little sister) to the quirky town of Midnight Gulch -- just another place Felicity won’t fit in at school, she’s sure of it, especially if the secret escapes that she sees words floating around all over the place.

But things here seem a little different. Accompanied by a new friend, classmate and secret do-gooder Jonah, Felicity begins to get a glimpse of what makes Midnight Gulch special: a little snicker of magic, somehow blossoming in most everyone she meets. But is it enough magic to fix her broken family? And does she have any magic of her own?

I say meh. The novel may take place in the South, but it is no kin to that caste of Southern stories with a deeply rooted sense of place and family. The language is sweetly...well, sweet, but it often whips around untethered from the plot. Countless strands of story are doing their darnedest to find each other and unify, but they don’t all quite make it.

Magical realism hasn’t yet found a warm home in children’s literature, but every little bit helps. Despite its problems, this one's not a bad primer to introduce kids to the genre. ( )

When I met the author Natalie Lloyd at the Connecticut Children's Book Fair, I wanted to read her story because she seemed so sweet and interesting. When I started reading A Snicker of Magic I immediately fell in love with the writing. Natalie Lloyd has a lyrical way with words that lull you into the story while the characters worm their way into your heart. I love the character of Felicity and her ability to see words. As someone who loves words and reading I thought it was the coolest thing ever to be able to see words hovering in different places and above people. The words she collects are unique, eclectic and sometimes brand-new. I was sad when the story ended because I wanted to find out more about Midnight Gulch and its unique magic. I recommend this book to kids in fourth grade and up who love a good story about family, friendships, and magic. I definitely plan to read more by Natalie Lloyd.

This is a fact I know to be true, thanks to all my world-weary travels: Making new friends, in a new place, when you’re the new girl, is harder than fractions.
Numbers tell all sorts of stories to some people, but they’ve never done so much as whisper at me.
The way he said her name made my heart cramp. In all my years of word collecting, I've learned this to be a tried and true fact: I can very often tell how much a person loves another person by the way they say their name. I think that's one of the best feelings in the world, when you know your name is safe in another person's mouth. When you know they'll never shout it out like a cuss word, but say it or whisper it like a once-upon-a-time.
So you keep catching them words, you hear? Pluck them out of the wind. String them together like the finest set of pearls. Line them up on paper. And if it hurts too much to say them, then you sing them, or whisper them, or write them into a story. But don't waste them. Your words matter more than you know.
Women who make you laugh, and who make you think, and who also happen to wear yellow flowers in their hair are always dangerous.
